Aloha Martin,

Can I ask why you want to use a table as input for a latex block?  An
alternative is to send the table to a source block in some other
language and then evaluate with :results latex.  The advantage is that
the other language can have loops and complex data types that make it
relatively easy to deal with tables.  It might be possible to do these
kinds of things with TeX, but it is likely to be difficult.
